.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of web users, considering the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to reach them.
The TLD was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
